About Rick Costello: “My interest in astronomy began when I was very young and I have been studying cosmology all my life as a serious hobby.  I began doing telescope viewing shows and lectures at schools and libraries in Connecticut in the early 1990’s and continue to do viewings and lectures here in the Berkshire’s since moving here in 2012.  Prior to moving here, I worked in the planetarium at The Children’s Museum in West Hartford, Ct.  Having telescopes since my teens, I have always thought of it as a duty to show others the night sky, from planets to other galaxies in the universe. It is a wonderful universe we are a part of and it is beautiful to see.”
